I’m not even kidding.
As regular commenters on this blog will know, I try not to meddle too much when approving comments. My thought is that people who may be new to PETA or to animal rights issues and who come across the blog for the first time may feel the need to vent a bit, and (as long as they’re not abusive or obviously recycling propaganda from certain anti-PETA organizations who are in the pocket of the meat industry), I’d prefer to allow them to do so in the hopes that they’ll stick around and maybe see animal rights in a different light. After all, that’s kind of what PETA’s here for.
Of course, I also want the blog to be a place where people who are genuinely interested in helping animals can discuss the issues that are important to them, and weigh in with their opinions on PETA’s campaigns. And I’m really excited about the potential for these new forums as an extension of that community. Whether you’re a seasoned activist or someone who’s new to animal rights and wants to learn more, you should definitely check out the forums, introduce yourself, and show yourself around. Have fun!

Almost all of us grew up eating meat, wearing leather, and going to circuses and zoos. We never considered the impact of these actions on the animals involved. For whatever reason, you are now asking the question: Why should animals have rights? Read more.
